Well, being a minimalist, but non-geek, I appreciate its simplicity and flexibility.
For example, I can use the "admin" facility / plugin where I have a full dashboard, etc. But if I want to edit a page locally, I can do so and ftp the resulting edits to my web host.
I'm encountering a problem creating a blog section though, it's not as straightforward as Wordpress for example.
